Summary:

“SAGE and the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNC Greensboro) have announced a partnership designed to encourage social science and humanities faculty and students at the university to publish in SAGE Open. Launched by SAGE in 2011, SAGE Open is the first peer-reviewed, broad-based ‘Gold’ open access social science and humanities journal. UNC Greensboro will subsidize the author fee for 30 accepted papers to SAGE Open at a discounted rate. SAGE will reach out to UNC Greensboro faculty and students to let them know about the subsidized fees. Additionally, SAGE will handle the billing and accounting for the fees so that it is a seamless transaction for UNC Greensboro authors. ‘As a major independent publisher for over fifty years, SAGE has contributed significantly to scholarly communication worldwide, and with SAGE Open, the company has moved boldly into an increasingly important realm of scholarly communication—gold open access publishing,’ said Rosann Bazirjian, Dean of University Libraries, University of North Carolina Greensboro. ‘The University Libraries at UNC Greensboro, which strongly support open access archiving and publishing, are proud to support our humanities and social science faculty in particular and gold open access publishing in general by partnering with SAGE in this new enterprise.’
